4:32 am
to cnn's request for comment. number two, jesse jackson jr. now admits he used campaign funds for personal expenses. the former congressman reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors. jackson and his wife were accused of using around $750,000 from his campaign on things like furs, michael jackson memorabilia, and $43,000 for a watch. a rollex. they will pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars and still could face time in prison. number three, and check this outen the right-hand side of your screen, a small fire ball over san francisco caught on tape. what was it? well, it's kind of scary if you think about the meteor that exploded over russia this week. but no such blast happened over the golden gate. number four, more details on the death of renegade cop christopher dorner. according to initial autopsy reports, the 33-year-old died from a single gun shot wound to the head that was likely self-inflicted after tuesday's standoff with police. dorner's being blamed for
4:33 am
killing four people and injuring at least three others as part of a vendetta against his former comrades. and number five, the bail hearing for olympic track star has been pushed back until tuesday. until then, he will be staying in a south african jail. the double amputee known as blade runner is charged with murdering his model girlfriend on valentine's day. his agent says pistorius denies the murder allegations. well, police have said there were other incidents at the pistorius' home of a domestic nature. and now prosecutors are saying they will pursue premeditated murder. i asked hln's jane velez-mitchell about that. >> well, premeditation could be an outright plot, or it could be premeditation in the blink of an eye. we are hearing that reeva was shot four times. so is that where they're making the case for premeditation? that he had the opportunity to stop after shooting her once -- one shot was in the hand reportedly. and then if he continues, does
4:34 am
that constitute premeditation? we don't have all the facts and we know from his management company that he is strongly disputing that he murdered her. but an ominous portrait is emerging. according to cops, there were only two people in the home. oscar and reeva, neighbors heard shouting before the shooting and, according to police, there were previous incidents of a domestic nature. and the final thing, susan, in 2009, he was accused of assault even though the charges were dropped. he apparently slammed the door so hard that a piece of it fell off, that also involved a female. does he have a temper problem specific lip whally when it com women? >> oscar rejects the murder allegation, quote, in the strongest terms here. but it seems as though it's another -- if he is guilty of this crime -- athlete fall from grace. do you think there was one oscar at home and another one in the public eye? we've seen this before. >> well, fascinating you should say that. i just talked to a couple of
4:35 am
people who worked with oscar and called him the most charming, gracious, soft spoken, beautiful man. but what happens in life is that people often present -- it's called reaction formation, the opposite of what they are as a smoke screen. did he have a temper of behind closed doors? did he have a problem with women? and, of course, the other possibility which has been floated in south africa is that there are such a high crime rate and he's spoken publicly and tweeted about his fear of intruders, that we know that he was a person who liked to shoot guns and had been to a gun range in the past several times. and that perhaps he thought there was an intruder in the house and shot her by accident. that would be the best-case scenario for him at this point. >> and he was breaking down in court sobbing and shaking. jane, do you think it finally set in with him what happened. that he's finally coming to and realizing his girlfriend, is, in
4:36 am
fact, dead at his hands? >> this is one of the most extraordinary falls from grace in recent years. i mean, this makes the tiger woods scandal look like a tea party. this is somebody who goes from being an international icon and an inspiration to everyone who has ever overcome any kind of adversity to someone accused of the most heinous hideous act imaginable. it's just a complete change of story line from a hero to an alleged monster. >> and this happened on valentine's day. and it's so sad. his girlfriend reeva was tweeting how she was excited for valentine's day. do you think passion will come up on the prosecution side? >> well, look, we don't have all the facts, but human nature, often, the story lines are pretty predictable. she's tweeting the day before valentine's day that her boo, boyfriend, oscar, made -- they're getting along fine and
4:37 am
some time before 3:00 in the morning, neighbors hear shouting. and according to a newspaper in africa that she may have gone into the bathroom. that these shots may have gone through the bathroom door, four shots. so did they have a fight as many women do? did she lock herself in the bathroom? he says come out and she p won't and then boom, boom, boom right there the bathroom door? that's a possibility. domestic incidents are -- they fall in a very narrow range. it's an argument that gets out of control and there's a gun handy and next thing you know, somebody's dead. >> and you can watch jane velez-mitchell weeknights at 7:00 p.m. eastern on our sister network hln. well, beyonce's tell-all documentary premieres tonight. but if you can't wait, we're going to tell you how to get a sneak peek.
